There were no images found for this item.


Notes:

Its name comes from a famous court case in 1882 in which Laurie was sued for having failed to divulge the true status of the instrument. Upon selling the instrument, Laurie had claimed that it was "a Stradivarius genuine in all its parts." But as he later conceded, the instrument was composite, assembled from genuine Stradivari parts, except for the left upper ribs. Laurie lost the case.
